Bewitched By Bountiful

Who says that a pumpkin is only for Halloween? This is a two for one project: one pumpkin, two different themes for the Fall Holidays! One side of the pumpkin features a Bountiful fall theme, perfect for Thanksgiving. And on the other side you’ll be Bewitched by a fun Halloween theme for making the perfect home decor piece.

Learn how to decorate your own pumpkin in both themes here.



My Nostalgic Canvas

Creating smaller sized canvases was the start to my mixed media fusion journey, and it had been awhile since I’d created one of my canvases and decided that it was time to revisit one of my favorite formats using some of my favorite colors, textures and found objects.

The #Hashtag Project

The #Hashtag Project is a way for artists to help each other grow our Instagram audiences while at the same time discover new artists to connect with, share ideas and be inspired by one another. 

This entire experience is built on community involvement! The #Hashtag Project is simply a compilation of hashtags that your fellow artists use on Instagram to build their audiences. The intent is to build a list of hashtags that we can all use with our own posts that are more targeted to our audiences for fostering growth in not only our individual followers or likes, but to cultivate the artist community on Instagram as well.
